The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Big oops!
Beef shipments to Japan, which just recently resumed, have been halted after a supplier sent beef backbones, which apparently are not allowed under the export agreement. See how we’re always screwing things up?

Rove sighting
Karl Rove is holding forth on what’s wrong with the Democrats again. That’s a good idea. I think Karl Rove should be spokesman for the Republican Party. I think he should make more public appearances, as often as possible. Maybe he can lead the Republicans to victory again in 2006. Not! Maybe we can get Scooter Libby to make some appearances on behalf of the GOP too.

Filibuster? Really?
Daily Kos is reporting that a filibuster of Alito might be possible. Cool. There is much about Alito that troubles me, his support of increased executive power and siding with corporations against the little guy, to name a few. Stay tuned next week for developments.

New Diet Pill
They’ve come up with a pill that can block the body’s absorption of fat. Of course it’s fraught with controversy and side effects (involuntary leakage? Ewwww!) Question: why not just stop eating fat?

Fighting Cancer?
Chalk up another one for turmeric.

How to keep from aging?
We’ve all heard that following a calorie-restricted diet can slow ageing. Here is a study supporting that contention.
